Boyz II Men was the surprise musical guest on ‘SNL’ and slayed with their tune ‘A Song For Mama’! Babyface joined the trio on guitar for the perfect Mother’s Day tribute.
It’s always a good time for Boyz II Men! Trio Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris and Shawn Stockman — accompanied by producer Babyface — performed their 1997 tune “A Song For Mama” on SNL in celebration of Mother’s Day. The group sounded absolutely incredible as they belted out the sweet song, honoring moms all around the world! “You taught me everything/Everything you’ve given me/I’ll always keep it inside You’re the driving force in my life, yeah,” they all sang from their home studios, as Babyface was perched in a hallway with his guitar.
The song was originally featured on their 1997 album Evolution, but is also remembered from the soundtrack for the film Soul Food. As the group sang in the black-and-white video, photos of the various SNL cast members and their mothers flashed across the screen. “Mama, Mama you know I love you/Mama, Mama you’re the queen of my heart/Your love is like tears from the stars,” they continued singing the chorus, later sharing a screenshot of the performance to their official Instagram account. “Happy mother’s days….. @nbcsnl,” they wrote, adding “@babyface thank you for sharing this special day/moment! #mama.” Babyface notably produced the tune, and has a long standing history for the group, including penning their signature hit “End Of The Road.”
